. as a country, we have been through this too many times. whether it is an elementary school in newtown or a shopping mall in oregon or a temple in wisconsin or a movie theater in aurora or a street corner in the chicago, these neighborhoods are our neighborhoods, and these children are our children. we will have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this regardless of politics. this evening, michelle and i will do what i know every parent in america will do, which is hug our children a little tighter, and we will tell them that we love them, and we will remind each other how deeply we love one another, but there are families in connecticut who cannot do that tonight, and they need all of us right now. in the hard day to come, the community needs us to be at our best as americans, and i will do everything in my power as president to help because while nothing can fill the space of a lost child or a loved one, all of us can extend a hand to those in need to remind them that we are there for them, that we are praying for them, that the love they felt f
the chairman of the rules committee. . mr. speaker, when i mention hurricane sandy and the tragedy in newtown, connecticut, many wonder what do they have in common? gun tragedy, the loss of 26 lives, and americans suffering from a devastating storm, certainly our hearts goes out to those babies who were lost. but it really speaks to americans in need, and i guess that's why i'm so troubled to be on the floor today, because the framework that we have says to america that when you're in need we will not as this congress and this government be prepared to help you. i think what is disappointing and i know for the speaker, it is probably the same case as i am speaking because just about three days ago we thought there was a deal between the white house and the framework that was offered and the leadership of this house. it's disappointing that in the course of a couple days we've come to a situation where this plan, plan b, raises only about $300 billion from high-income households and the centers for budget priorities suggest that millionaires will get $108,500 per $1 million, over $1 million in
